Ouch. (AKA why you should listen to what he says, because he's right.)

Ouch. And boy, @hilarityinshoes has good taste. She pointed out the below blog post and it's so amazing I'm not even linking to it quietly but rather devoting a whole post to it:

"This situation is one of the only times in life that a person will look you in the eye and tell you, outright, that if you stick around, he’s going to screw you over. This is one of the only times in the course of your entire adulthood when someone is going to tell you he has no good intentions where your heart is concerned; that this is going exactly nowhere. This man is doing you a favor. You should be grateful. But no. You don’t see that. You see a challenge. You think you’re gonna change this man’s mind."

  1. That post you linked to? Is goddamned brilliant. Probably shouldn't have, but I sent the link to Paolo (who may or may not read it) and said, "Truth hurts, I guess. This sounds a lot like us, huh?"

    I am amazed at the clarity. The rightness. The dead-on-ness. I read it three times. I will reread it again. I need to.
